EB premiere! The modules that I've done for the EBCSWB gave me the idea for this.

I don't know how you do it, AC.  This is absolutely amazing.  Of all the fantastic details, the elevated control room catches my eye the most.  I'm not sure why, as it isn't the flashiest part of the MOC.  It's probably because of my engineering background.  

Someday someone is going to have to teach how to design a good vig.  Even in my wildest dreams I couldn't come up with anything close to this good.

Short and simple back story, but you can probably guess what it's all about based from what you saw even if I didn't mention it.

Detail, detail, and more detail. Did you spot the locations of the sneak pics in the whole dio?

The overall design of the facility was based on manufacturing plants and the placement of the control room was essential to be able to oversee the whole process.

It's not enough to have all the details without the appropriate minifigs in action to give it life. There's also the cohesiveness of their action for every part to tell the whole story. Practice, practice, practice and you'll soon learn the ways of the force!

That's the main control room containing all the power and communication for the facility. Good thing you found her and you know that in previous episodes, she has the habit of sneaking through port holes, ventilation shafts and this time it's the exhaust port for the engines during the firing test.

Perhaps it's time for Ani and Obi to skip the chit chat and do what they're supposed to do? :laugh:
Great MOC AcPin.
I'll blog it on the frontpage in a few hours.
It certainly deserves it.
Thanks for sharing.

Great work as always AC!

Oodles of detail and lots going on, your dioramas never disappoint. I really like your use of all those printed elements from the T-16 set and how you've built the observation deck with the 3 sided bay windows running across the top, very nice.

The Where's Wally-esque Asajj Ventress is cool too!

You've been watching too much of these CW cartoons as you were able to get the scene between them spot on. Seriously, they always seem to argue at the most crucial time before the action comes through. Congrats for catching that!

Thanks for the FP whenever you get to it.

Always looking for ways to make use of printed bricks in unexpected places. How about figuring out what piece was used for the stands that hold the engines? Must admit though that I've already used the same technique for those bay windows in another MOC years ago.

It shouldn't have been that hard to find her and looks like you've enjoyed viewing this.

Wow, that is one awesome creation, and I love your segway.

I really like all the action, there are so many independent people doing their own thing.  I wish I culd click play and have the whole thing come to life.

Really fantastic job!

I don't recall segways in the SW universe, but you definetaly have my attention.  I want to see this picture zoom out and find a huge ship with lots of hallways.

I can hope right?
Did it meet your expectations?

No thanks, but I won't do stop motion to accomodate your wish.  :classic:
